This was not as good as The House in the Cerulean Sea. It was slow to start and I didn‘t really care for the ending. I did enjoy the middle section and I love Klune‘s writing.

I really enjoyed every page of this very long book. It was beautifully written. It spanned decades. How peoples views changed over the years! I some ways, I feel that we live in a better world today. Yet, do we? I felt close to many of the characters, and feel a bit sad to say goodbye now that the book has ended.

I do kind of hate the cover after reading the book (as one of the protagonists is gender nonconforming and would only dress like the cover image as a disguise not as herself), but this book was super cute and fun and I really enjoyed it. The protagonists are relatable and funny, the adventure was interesting and exciting, and I enjoy the side characters a lot too. Looking forward to continuing the series. Definitely recommended!

I love a book that‘s set in an unusual frame of time, this is set over the course of one weekend for a fat, gay, Black, southern raised and midwestern living man in grad school. It discusses friendship and opening up to be vulnerable and hurting others and being gay and being at a PWI as a Black man. It‘s not a light read (check CW) but it‘s human and it‘s intimate and I felt like I really got to know the main character.

I don't know where to even start with this one! It's hilarious, heartbreaking, and so relatable. Paris is an anxious spirally mess and (although thankfully I am nowhere near as bad) there were many times when I wanted to thrust the book at my bf and say 'This! This is how my brain works!'
I loved that he and Tariq both had to work on themselves before they could really build a life together. Alexis Hall knows how to write serious topics with humor

The thing about studying in a library is that you‘re always tempted to check out more books📚.

This mark is almost pure perfection for this 📖But instead of a Princess, we get a prince

The 👺 has been slain. Arek (against his wishes) agrees to be🤴for an hr or so, as they free the rightful heir. But his 1 hr gig becomes indefinite when they realize the Princess is☠️Since he accepted the👑, Arek entered a magical contract. “Til death do us part” w/ some extra requirements like, finding a 💕 . Pitched as a fantasy romcom, it 💯 delivered

rwmg Sounds hilarious. Wishlisted 1h

Went into this totally blind, solely based on the hype and it did not disappoint. Not my usual genre... while there is an underlying element of mystery to it, this story is pure drama. In fact it's dripping with so much drama and glamour and secrecy that I almost forgot the big question that had been hanging in the background. I listened to the audiobook and it was a spectacular production, just brought everything to life! Highly recommend. #AAM

4/5⭐ The exploratory vibe of the first book gave way to the epic journey in this one. I fell deep into the fullness of the world, the families involved and theme of what makes a family, the myths and lore that changed and built over time to the main predicament of this book, and the hero's journey mirrored in the characters' paths. It was a wholly satisfying conclusion to the first book, and I devoured it in only about half a day.

1. As often as not, it‘s determined by what is due next at the library. Sometimes I fail miserably and have to check them out again!
2. This week, it‘s today! No appointments or other obligations - just time to dive into the tagged book.
